Robert Dawson portraitRobert Dawson was born in 1926. Leaving school at 17, Dawson was offered a scholarship to Stoke-on-Trent College of Art, but was persuaded by his mother to join a solicitor’s office. Aged 22, Dawson joined a touring dance band, performing in US Airforce bases in Germany. After studying English and Art at Clarendon College, Nottingham, in 1965, he trained as a primary school teacher.
